Today, I am on site, at Lake Champlain, investigating the location from which the new footage was taken and other details. I will be talking to various individuals connected to this incident and there with a regional documentary film crew. I’ll give a overview of what I discover later in the week.
[Noon update, Tuesday: I briefly found a wifi location. It is sunny and in the 80s here. Quite different than over on the Atlantic Coast where I was yesterday. No Champ sightings yet. Only one live woodchuck, and he wasn't chucking wood but eating some form of plant material. More later, or tomorrow.]
I’ll keep my eye out for misidentified animals. And hidden cryptids.
The following stabilized version of the Eric Olsen-obtained video was produced by John Donald Carlucci of Darke Media.
